No one is a perfect communicator. Here are some sure-fire ways to improve your communication skills. First off, be a good listener. Most people don’t understand how valuable listening is in the communication process. Next up, never talk over people. This demonstrates a real lack of respect. And don’t finish other people’s sentences. Focus on active listening instead of passive listening. Last but not least, maintain eye contact. By looking the other person in the eye, you are proving that you’re interested in what they’re saying.
